After 20-plus years as a sex advice columnist, author, and LGBT activist, you would think Dan Savage would have earned the right to relax a little. He hasn't.
"The asshole tech people make it impossible to just take the time to be a writer anymore," says Savage during a call with City Pages this past week. "It's hard to find the time to write when you've got a column and a podcast, then people want you to be active on Twitter, and now there's Instagram, and apparently I have to be on fucking Vine now. It's crazy."
Despite the increasingly busy schedule, Savage found the time to release his new book, American Savage, earlier this month. A collection of essays combining his completely unfiltered outlook on relationships, religion, politics, and, of course, sex, the book is Savage's first solo effort since 2005's The Commitment.
To celebrate the release, Savage will be stopping in the Twin Cities for a very special discussion at Macalester College in St. Paul Tuesday night where he'll share his always insightful and entertaining thoughts on pretty much anything you can think of. More »
